Former New York Gov. George Pataki is preparing a bid for the Republican presidential nomination, and most of the political class gives him little chance of making a dent in the race. But Pataki has his virtues, according to the New York Observer
“Admit it: when you heard that George Pataki was preparing a presidential campaign, you thought you heard wrong,” the paper says. “Then you laughed. And then you laughed a little louder.
“This time around, however, it might be wise to get past the laughter and sense of incredulity,” according to the Observer. “That’s because the state of the Republican presidential campaign is such that George Pataki might well emerge as a voice of reason and intelligence in a race that has been dominated by the likes of Michele Bachmann.”
Pataki “can articulate a more tolerant, more sane Republican agenda,” the Observer maintains.
